This is a question Pretentious bollocks

Possibly the worst event I ever went to was an evening of turntablists in London. The lights went down, the first guy put a cymbal onto a turntable, dropped the needle on it and left it making screeching noises for ten minutes.

When the lights came up, half the audience had snuck out.

What's the most pretentious rubbish you've ever been to see in the name of art?

Wim Delvoye's
Cloaca. It's a shit machine. Literally. It actually produces shit.
Food goes in, shit comes out, "inventor" sells the shit for insane amounts of money. I put the quotes there because the guy did fuck all (jack shit pun intentionally avoided). He basically told a bunch of engineers "I want a machine that produces shit out of food. It will make me rich and famous. If you make it happen, I'll give you all a poo you can sell on eBay." That's contemporary art for ya.
They're actually working on a compact version of the Cloaca. Imagine that. Now you can have a faeces producing machine in your own home! Right next to the washer and the dryer!

Oh yes, same guy also makes a fortune selling the hides of tattooed pigs.
